razorock and quality

Post by nicodemus38 » Fri Dec 25, 2015 8:26 pm

How can anyone say, honestly that they get the same shave qualities from individual containers of razorock product? Every reliable source states and admits that the razorock products are always changing. namely in ingredients. every batch can be a different manufacturer, and have completely different ingredients.

For example the razorock classic has been so many formulations both vegan and tallow based that reviews need to start containing lot numbers to be of any use for a person.

the vegan one is OK. but the tallow is wonderful. but their is absolutely no way to track down the tallow version through retailers.

Nic, I suggest we ask Joseph this question. He's usually eager to address questions and comments regarding his products. These things you are suggesting are news to me. I'd like to have Joe's input.

I was spoiled. I used the original xxx to which all others fail to compare. But in the trumpers line, rose is the gold standard and so for all intent and purpose all scaling might easily be blamed on becks induced imagination. Good luck finding answers to your question

I've noticed that the quality of the Razorock soaps has declined with each new version that comes out.
The original XXX is still the best of the whole bunch of croaps.

i don't know about the razors, but for the most part they LOOK and SEEM to be the same that maggard sells under their own label. And I hear very similar comments on quality and fit of both that leave me thinking they are the same.

the razorock classic I have is the vegan formula. It does work ok, but it only works well if I face lather it. I did a practice hand lather test few weeks ago. And it made beautiful lather after 15 laps on my hand, but it was completely worthless for shaving.

the irony is that the "better" shave wise formulas all have massive combinations of scents.
